I walked in to my job today only to find out that our testing has been outsourced, so that means no more J-O-B for me and the other 16 people that make up my lab. Talk about coming out of left field! But don't cry for me Argentina...I'm almost embarrassed to say that I'm happy this era has finally ended; I'm happy I don't have to work here anymore...there's no creativity in my job. The work was mundane and I felt like my degree and my skills had been rendered obsolete. I've hated my job for so long, maybe...just maybe this is God's way of opening up my path to doing my own thing!
This is the very first time I've ever lost a job and not having the stability of employment does sort of kind of suck (don't get me wrong) especially since I used my savings to keep afloat when I was on maternity leave last summer and I've been playing catch up ever since. But like I said, it's all good...now I really need to get on the ball with trying to do my own thing.
I feel bad because two of my co-workers were in tears and I was actually smiling! I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. This morning before our meeting, I said a quick prayer to God that I find a way to do what I'm supposed to be doing because I know there are better things out there for me! I really want to do more with scrapbooking and I really want to hone my photography skills and start my own photography company...I just don't know where to start. So if you're reading this and have any advice, just drop me a line in the comments section!
August 8th is my last day after 10 years on the job. I literally started when this lab opened. My birthday is August 3rd...what a bitter sweet way to turn 35!
I a going to miss the people that I work with, though. We're all like family...a big melting pot of different ethnicities! They made made every day so much easier to get through, I'll be sure to keep in touch with them!
